Guy Bailey University of Alabama

The University of Alabama is still paying ex-President Guy Bailey $535,000 a year even though he resigned after just two months on the job.

Bailey cited his wife's health in unexpectedly quitting in late October. But university system spokeswoman Kellee Reinhart told The Associated Press on Friday that Bailey remains on the university payroll.

Bailey is officially on leave through August. He could return to campus as an English professor after that.
